Looking for a way to hang a couple longboards up in the garage, we came up with this simple design.

This supports the board by the wheels, gets it out of the way and protects it from getting beat up. 

Step 1: Material and tools

PVC pipe - 3 inch diameter schedule 40, 10 inches or more. Can be solid or foam core.
Fasteners - 2" drywall screws, EZ-anchors or Tapcons.

Table saw, miter saw and band saw. If you don't have these, a hack saw will do the whole job, it just takes a bit more work.
Drill press or hand drill
3/16 and 3/8 drill bits
tape measure/ruler
<p>Very simple solution to suspend the skateboards. I've attached them to the inside walls of a cupboard which is so much neater now. Thanks for the idea!</p>
Hey, just want to say thanks for the great idea! I got a bit carried away and made 5 brackets inspired by your idea! (Including a pen holder! haha) I made them out of Aluminium! :)
Nice work senseimeshari- looks great!
This is an amazing idea. So cool. I've done it with a dremel then Plastidip it with red color.
<p>thanks for the brilliant idea! simple and cool</p>
<p>This makes me want to get another longboard!</p>
Cool, nice work mOWWck!
<p>Awesome instructable. 5$ worth of pipe and a dremel is better than anything I could buy.</p>
<p>perfect board rack!! thanks for sharing the idea. :)<br>here's my version of it...</p>
That looks really sweet! Thanks for posting a picture. Did you laser cut it out and bend it?
<p>Thanks, I appreciate that. :)<br>No, its all done by hand out of an sewage pipe like you did.</p><p>The ION logo is just a sticker, but on the picture it looks like a cut-out you're right. ;)</p>
I have been looking for a way to hang my longboards and this is perfect.
Cool, nice work! Thanks for posting a pic. Dang, the trucks on that board are wide - can you even ride it on a sidewalk???
Haha ya they can but u just gotta be carful of pinecones they will make u do a 180 if your not carful.
very nice.
Thanks carlo$. The notch is necessary for my trucks but you're on to something - Bear and Paris style trucks don't need the notch. I'll add that to the notes. Glad you pointed that out.
from the last picture, it looks like the notch is not necessary. Nothing is hitting the pvc.

Smart! If I still had a skate board, I would suspend it this way!
That's a big gear, no? 52x11? ever too late to get back into it for a little cross training or carving on some downhills.
Yep it's a big gear. <br>About skateboarding: too many things in life....
Very cool, might do this for all the boards dotted about my lounge. Would actually be ideal as a 'daily board' hanger by my front door :)
It's easy to make a bunch all at once, hope it works out well hanging in the 'void. I've seen grey 3&quot; conduit that may look cool, another guy found black PVC for some color options... Have fun.
Very Cool <br> <br>Very elegant, simple design!
Thanks tinworm.
Thanks tpeterson.
Great idea. thanks for sharing.
Thanks cammers - hope it's helpful.
That's pretty cool. Good idea.
Hey, thanks alot. It's super simple to make.
I don't even have a skateboard and I think this is awesome. You should market these!
Thanks - thumbs up!
Finished making one tried to spray paint it with plasti dip, but my impatience got the best of me, and i ended up just sticking with the plain black PVC. I'm trying to find a spot to hang the second one now... A side note, you have to have a stud to mount these. I got lucky with the first attempt, but the second attempt left me with some drywall holes.
Awesome, thanks for posting the pic. And very nice board! <br> <br>If you don't have a stud to mount it to, consider an EZ-toggle, they hold really well in drywall.
I do not ride a skateboard but I think this is the most ingenious instructable I have seen in a long time.
I'll have to post my rack latter I made it a couple years ago to hold 6 boards with 3/4 PVC &amp; wood.
That looks so simple yet so cool! Nice job!
Hey, Thanks Peter!
